I caught some of a Shark Byte from earlier this season and Patty is in a white stretch limo with some teammates after an appearance at the NHL Store in New York and he says that there's "a plethora of places" they can go eat. Yes, he does actually say "plethora". And HEATLEY says "good word" and it's that moment that I finally realize he has that same public face as Sidney Crosby and Tiger Woods, and I suppose it's a good call for him because he really shouldn't be revealing any of his personality.
Patty is really behaving like he's senile these days. Or you know, just getting older. One of the reasons I like him is that he really reminds me of my dad, and oddly enough the changes in him (mellowing out, saying funny things, just talking at all in general, having facial expressions) remind me of how my dad changed as he entered his fifties. This was very frustrating for my mother, who complained thus, "Your father talks so much now! When we got married, he never talked; it was so great."
[ Edit: Also, I'm shamefully addicted to The Biggest Loser. I pretty much knew Bob was gay but I didn't know Jillian was too! Somehow this makes the show even more fun. :P ]
